Bachy starts piling on major Australian road scheme

Australia-based AFS Bachy Soletanche has started work on the Glenugie to Ballina bypass section of the AUS$4.36bn (£2.5bn) Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway upgrade project.

Bachy is working for the Roads and Maritime Services and Pacific Complete – a joint venture of Laing O’Rourke and WSP – on the Australian and New South Wales government funded scheme.

Bachy will install around 1,100 bored piles under polymer and steel driven piles for 38 single and 37 twin bridges on the route.

The company has said that it will mobilise up to eight rigs for the work and it will take 12 months to complete.
